Guard Swap

  • The move now creates a link between the player and the Pokémon which this move hits, swapping the player’s Defense and Sp. Def stats with those of the linked Pokémon. If the linked Pokémon is an opposing Pokémon, this move deals damage over time to it and decreases its movement speed, while also increasing the player’s movement speed.
  • If the linked Pokémon is an ally Pokémon, this move increases the movement speed of that Pokémon and the player. These effects will persist as long as the two Pokémon remains linked. The link will disappear, if the player and the linked Pokémon are too far apart, if the user attempts to target another Pokémon, or by other factors.”
